SUMMARY 

If you've ever struggled to use a solderless breadboard with an Arduino, you understand how 
frustrating it can be! The Boarduino clone acts just like an Arduino, and works with the latest 
Arduino software. For many projects it can even be preferable! 



Step 1 — Parts Check! 




• At the top of this guide, you will find a list of the supplied parts to build this kit. 

• Make sure you have all of the required parts. If you are missing any parts, check under 
your chair!

Step 2 — Insert the 2.1mm DC Jack 




• Place the 2.1mm DC jack on the side of the circuit board with the white text and images. 

• Make the jack snug with the circuit board by firmly pressing it down. 

• Turn the circuit board over and solder the leads to the board. 



Step 3 — Insert the Dl Diode 




• On the circuit board at D1, you will 
notice one end of the image has a 
white strip. 

• Insert the diode into D1 with the 
gray/white strip matched up with 
the white strip on the circuit board. 

• Turn the board over, and solder the 
diode in.

Step 4 — Insert the C3 Capacitor 




• Insert the longer lead of the blue capacitor into the C3 hole marked with the (+) sign, and 
the shorter lead (-) goes into the other hole on the PCB. 

Step 5 — Insert the Ceramic Capacitors

• In positions C1, C5, C2, and C6, insert the small yellow capacitors. 

• These ceramic capacitors are not polarized, so you can insert them either way. 

• Secure these in the circuit board, turn the board over, and solder them in.

Step 6 — Insert the 5V Regulator 




• The 5V Regulator is an integral component of the kit. It takes the source voltage, and 
regulates it down to a healthy 5V. 

• Insert the regulator as shown in the photo. The heat sink tab should be facing outward. 

• Secure the component, turn the board over, and solder it in. 

Step 7 — Insert the lOOuF Capacitor 




• The black 100uF, 6.3V, black capacitor should be inserted into the C4 spot. 

• This capacitor is polarized, so orientation is important. Be sure that the lead near the white 
strip (-) on the capacitor is placed into the hole marked with the negative symbol (-), and 
the other (longer) lead is inserted into the hole marked with a plus (+).

Step 8 — Insert the Green LED 




• Whoops! I accidentally placed the red LED in place of the green LED. It's not that big of a 
deal! 

• The green LED should be inserted at D2, while the red LED should be inserted at D3. 

• The LEDs are polarized. Make sure to insert the longer lead (+) into the hole marked with 
the (+) sign, and the shorter lead (-) goes into the other available hole in the PCB. 



Step 9 — Insert the IK resistor.

• One of the 1K Resistors (Brown- 
Black-Red) should be placed into 
the hole marked R2. 

• To save some space the resistor is 
soldered on in a "standing" 
position. Insert the resistor in a 
"standing" position as pictured. The 
body of the resistor will be by the 
area marked "R2". 

• Secure the resistor, turn the circuit 
board over, and solder it in place. 
Next, clip the leads flush.

Step 10 — Your First Test 




• Find a power source, such as a 9V 
DC wall adapter or a 9V battery, 
with a 2.1mm barrel jack. 

• Plug the jack into the wall, and you 
should see your green LED light 
up. 

• I have a red LED in place of a 
green LED, but if the LED lights up, 
then you are in good shape! 



Step 11 — Snip a 3-Pin Header. 




• The headers are the long strips of plastic with all the pins sticking out. These are used to 
insert the Boarduino in the breadboard. 

• Take some clippers, and cut off a section of 3 pins. 

• Insert this 3-pin header into the PWR-SEL holes, with the longer ends sticking up. 

• These are tricky to solder. You might want to use some tape to hold it in place while 
soldering it. 

• Next, place the included jumper so it's on the 'EXT pair of pins.

Step 12 — Insert the Ceramic Oscillator. 




• The ceramic oscillator should be 
placed in the holes marked X1. 

• This component is not polarized, so 
it does not matter which direction 
you place it in on your circuit 
board. 

• Turn the board over, and solder it 
in. 



Step 13 — Insert the Final Resistors 




• The two other resistors should be 
inserted into spots R1 and R3. The 
resistor for R1 is the 10K resistor, 
colored brown-black-orange-gold. 
In R3 insert the remaining 1K 
resistor, which is the resistor 
colored brown-black-red-gold. 

• Just as with the first resistor, place 
it in with the body of the resistor 
facing down toward the circles. 

• Secure the resistors, turn the board 
over, and solder them in.

Step 14 — Insert the Chip Holder 





•w :

: :3-, 






• The IC holder should be placed on the board with the notched end facing the notched end 
of the silkscreened image on the circuit board. 

• Turn the circuit board over, and carefully solder each joint. Be sure not to bridge any of the 
solder joints. 

• If a bridge does occur, you can use some solder wick or a solder sucker to remove the 
solder from the circuit board. 

Step 15 — Insert the 6-Pin Header. 




• Cut a 6-Pin header section, and insert the shorter pins into the PCB from the front of the 
board. 

• Turn the board over and solder the shorter pins from the back of the PCB.

Step 16 — Insert the Push-Button Switch 




• The push-button switch can be 
inserted either way into the spot 
S1. 

• The switch should fit pretty 
securely, so just turn the switch 
over and solder it in. 



Step 17 — Insert the 6-Pin ICSP Header 




• This is the header in the shape of a 
rectangle, with six pins. 

• Insert it with the longer pins facing 
up, into the six holes next to the 
push-button switch. 

• Turn the board over, and solder it 

in!

Step 18 — Inserting the Final Headers (Part 1) 




• Snip 4 pieces of header pins; one 10-pin, one 8-pin, one 6-pin, and one 4-pin. 

• Insert them into a solderless breadboard as shown in image 2. 

• The longer leads should be placed in the breadboard! (Short leads up.) 

• Now place the Boarduino on top of the headers, so that they all fit securely. 



Step 19 — Insert the Final Headers (Part 2) 




• Now you just need to solder each 
of the headers into place on the 
circuit board. 

• You will be soldering from the top 
of the circuit board. 

• Be careful not bridge any solder 
joints.

Step 20 — Insert the IC. 




• It can be difficult to insert the IC. 
You will want to make sure the 
leads on the IC are straight, and 
not "flared" out. 

• You can place the IC on a flat 
surface and gently bend the leads 
until they are straight, coming out 
of the IC at a 90-degree angle. 

• All done! Try powering it up and 
upload some code.
